Microsoft has said Peter Jackson's Halo project isn't in the bin after all - it's just "on hold".

"Microsoft Game Studios is deeply committed to supporting and strategically growing the Halo franchise, and our relationship with Peter and his team is something that we greatly value," reads a statement issued to Joystiq.

"Given the bandwidth of both of our companies we've decided to put this joint effort on hold and prioritise resources against other projects like Halo 3: ODST, Halo: Reach and Halo Legends."

Hmm. That's not quite what Jackson said earlier this week - in fact he stated, "That Halo project is no longer happening." Maybe he should send them a quick text?
